THE SHOW

Telford’s annual off-road and road-racing show has a tradition of drawing the biggest names and 2018 is no different as the Classic Dirt Bike Show sponsored by Hagon Shocks returns to Telford International Centre over the weekend of February 17-18.

Clubs and private entrants will pack into the venue once again, bringing together the most fascinating collection of historic off-road machines you’ll find under one roof, and they’ll be joined by a raft of traders offering everything from parts and spares through to accessories and riding kit, plus project bikes…if you’re tempted.

THE GUESTS OF HONOUR

Gerrit Wolsink… is a Dutch former professional Grand Prix motocross racer who competed in motocross Grand Prix world championships in the 1970s. He is best remembered for being a five-time winner of the 500cc United States Grand Prix of motocross. A dentist by training, Gerrit Wolsink chose a career in motorcycle racing. He began competing on the Grand Prix motocross circuit on a Maico motorcycle as a privateer. In 1974 he was offered a spot on the Suzuki factory racing team as Roger De Coster’s teammate. He finished third in the 500cc world championship in 1975 and 1977 and second in 1976 and 1979.

Colin Dommett… has done it all combining solo trials for the Cotton factory, competing in the ISDT, branching into Classic scrambling and latterly becoming the voice of the classic scrambles scene behind the commentator’s microphone. Now 60 years on and he is still competing but his greatest moments came in sidecar trials when between 1976 and 1980 he won the British crown 4 times.

Peter Duke… Successful off-road rider, ISDT competitor, founder of the Duke DVD empire and the son of late world champion motorcycle racer Geoff Duke.

THE DINNER

As traditional as the event itself, the Saturday evening of the show sees the hosting of a three-course, sit-down meal while off-road legends recount memories of their exploits to assembled guests. The dinner costs just £33 per person (vegetarian option available) and takes place at the Holiday Inn on site.

The Classic Dirt Bike Show dinner itself will feature speeches from Gerrit, Colin and Peter.

Lastly, 2018 marks Hagon Shocks’ 60th anniversary and to celebrate, the Classic Dirt Bike Show will have the largest collection of Hagon competition motorcycles ever assembled. The Hagon family will also be joining us at the dinner table.
